The global gas separation membrane market size is projected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2030 from USD 1.0 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period. The growing demand for clean energy is driving the increased adoption of gas separation membranes. This technology encompasses diverse methods and processes designed to separate various gases from mixtures based on distinctive properties including size, solubility, chemical reactivity, or molecular weight. Gas separation technology finds extensive applications across a spectrum of industries, playing a vital role in processes such as gas purification, environmental conservation, energy generation, and healthcare.

“Spiral wound is the second largest module in terms of value in the gas separation membrane market, in 2022.”
Spiral wound modules play a vital role in gas separation membrane technology, renowned for their effectiveness and flexibility in separating gases. These modules are constructed by tightly winding flat-sheet membrane material around a central tube in a spiral pattern. They offer extensive surface areas for gas separation, facilitating efficient interaction between the gas mixture and the membrane material. This results in high gas throughput, making spiral wound modules ideal for applications handling large gas volumes. Their compact design proves advantageous in space-constrained environments.

“Nitrogen generation & oxygen enrichment accounted for the second largest market share in terms of value in the gas separation membrane market, in 2022.”
Gas separation membranes play a vital role in both nitrogen generation and oxygen enrichment processes. In nitrogen generation, these membranes selectively extract nitrogen from the surrounding air, ensuring the production of high-purity nitrogen used in applications such as food packaging and electronics manufacturing. Conversely, in oxygen enrichment, the gas separation membranes allow only oxygen to permeate through, creating an oxygen-enriched stream essential for healthcare applications such as oxygen concentrators. These membranes enhance the efficiency and dependability of gas production, benefiting industries requiring precise gas compositions for diverse purposes, ranging from industrial processes to medical therapies.

“North America is the second largest region in the gas separation membrane market in 2022.”
In North America, strict environmental regulations aimed at emission reduction and enhancing air quality are prompting industries to embrace gas separation membranes for efficient pollutant capture and separation. Additionally, the region’s increasing focus on clean energy sources, propelled by environmental concerns and sustainability objectives, is driving the demand for gas separation membranes. Ongoing advancements in gas separation membrane technology, encompassing material enhancements, design refinements, and manufacturing process improvements, are broadening their utility and bolstering their effectiveness and efficiency. Moreover, gas separation membranes are extensively utilized across diverse sectors in North America, including oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, and food and beverage industries. This widespread adoption is attributed to their role in gas purification, separation, and recovery processes within these industries.
